Summer Associates in Global Capital Markets (GCM) are directly placed into one of our main departments: Equity Capital Markets, Fixed Income Capital Markets, Leveraged Finance or Client Solutions. During the 10-week program, you will be working with our clients on complex, innovative financing and risk management solutions in a trading floor setting. The environment is market-driven and reflects that of a trading desk where you would potentially sit beside your Managing Director. The GCM experience and the flat structure will provide you with a high level of responsibility early in your career.
The Summer Program begins in June with a one-week training program at our corporate headquarters in New York City. Training consists of a variety of presentations and exercises led by experts ranging from professors and industry leaders to current bankers. It includes course work in accounting, industry and product-specific training, introduction to Morgan Stanley proprietary analytical tools and an overall introduction to the Firm. Associates then spend the summer in one of our specific groups building a foundation of financial skills and a solid understanding of the markets. You will have mentors to aid you in your development and provide greater exposure to GCM and the Firm, and you will participate in regular training sessions hosted by Firm representatives on various topics ranging from new trends in the marketplace to group overviews.
